Donating safely to charities supporting people affected by Middle East conflict

Published Thursday 2 November 2023 at 10:38

With the harrowing scenes from the Middle East continuing to be shared across international media, many people’s first thought is ‘how can I help?’. Here’s some advice on making sure your donations are going to reputable charities and appeals.  

We know that many residents are deeply affected by the violence and particularly the loss of innocent lives, and simply want to help end the humanitarian crisis. 

One of the best ways to help is by donating cash through trusted charities and aid organisations, rather than donating goods. 

There are a number of national and international charities with good reputations that are currently fundraising and accepting donations to help people caught up in the violence in Israel and Gaza.  

British Red Cross – Israel & Occupied Palestinian Territory Appeal  

UNWRA Gaza Emergency Appeal 

Save The Children – Gaza Emergency Appeal  

UNICEF – Children in Gaza Crisis Appeal 

There is also advice on safe charitable giving on the GOV.UK website.
